Don’t forget #worldnakedgardeningday 5th May 2018
Gardening naked is not only a simple joy, it reminds us–even if only for those few sunkissed minutes–that we can be honest with who we are as humans and as part of this planet.
Don’t forget to share your photos using the hashtag. Let’s show the world we love gardening, our planet, the environment and our bodies!
For those of us living in the northern hemisphere, Spring has arrived and this means World Naked Gardening Day is fast approaching.
Time to mark Saturday 5th May 2018 in your diaries.
World Naked Gardening Day is an annual event (this year will be its fourteenth) and encourages people to get outdoors in your garden and enjoy the simple pleasure of connecting with the natural world while being clothes free.
You don’t have to have a garden to join in, in fact many people will not have access to one or they may not be able to be nude in their own garden, it’s about being naked and connecting with nature, why not spend a few hours naked indoors and make up some potted plant arrangements for the window sill? Or Potter about on your terrace or balcony. Plant some seeds or create a terrarium indoors with succulent plants – the activities are simple and varied and the connection is being naked and free.
Why not join in and share your photos on social media on the day using #wngd
Don’t forget World Naked Gardening Day 6th May 2017 #wngd
It’s that time in high summer when all the hard work and prep in the spring pays off and the garden looks at its best!
I have a small area in the corner of my garden shaded by conifers and an Acer tree that I try my best to grow grass on every year and by the late autumn it all dies.
I must be spending a lot of money and time each year, buying new grass seed and tending and cutting it to see it die and have to start it all over again in the spring.
I had a brainwave a few weeks ago to give up on growing grass in this corner and instead bark chip the ground and add pots of shade loving plants. Not only is it almost maintenance free, it’s kind to insects and other wildlife in the garden.
It meets my naturist beliefs of protecting nature and living in harmony with it.
Luckily we’ve had some gorgeous warm, sunny weather this early May weekend in southern England and it’s been just perfect for me to work on this garden project and after a few hours, I’m really pleased with the results.
I have some ferns growing which I will add soon and further pots to give it that authentic woodland feel. I love it and I’ve really enjoyed working naked on both World Naked Gardening Day (7th May) and Sunday.
Enjoy your garden if you have one, if not try and get out and enjoy nature outdoors. It’s good for mind and body.
