Yes, this is a real event that was founded in 2005 and yes, I thought twice about writing this article.
So, I thought that the best way not to offend too many readers was to simply come up with 5 pointers on things to avoid on WNGD in hopes of a better outcome.
The first time an annual World Naked Gardening Day event took place was on September 10, 2005. In 2007, the event date was moved to the first Saturday in May. International Permaculture Day, also takes place on the first Sunday of May. It is fitting That WNGD coincides with good weather and tries not to conflict with with the World Naked Bike Ride. Besides, Spring is the ideal time of year to be in the garden.
This annual event is intended to be non-political, and more about creating a positive human body self-image and appreciation for the natural world. My feeling has always been that there are really only two reasons for public nudity – either to see or be seen. In my case, it is definitely best to celebrate the entire day by working with my houseplants!
