Every garden is unique with a multitude of choices in soils,
plants, and themes. Finding your garden theme is as easy
as seeing what brings a smile to your face.

There’s nothing like getting back to nature to make you feel refreshed and revitalized, and there’s nothing like being naked while gardening to get back to nature.

If you love getting your hands and feet into the fertile soil and enjoying the sight and smell of newly sprouted plants on their journey to becoming beautiful full ground plants, and also enjoy being naked under the warmth of the sun, then Naked Gardening Day is for you.

History of Naked Gardening Day

In certain countries in the world, there’s an unfortunate tendency to sexualize all nudity, making the natural state of our bodies one that is seen as uncomfortable and shameful to exist in.

Naked Gardening Day seeks to help change that by taking a normal everyday activity, gardening, and mixing it with another perfectly natural thing, being naked. There’s nothing like being out in the sun and soil while helping mother nature grow beautiful things to get us acquainted with the essential things in life.

While, generally speaking, Naked Gardening Day isn’t intended to be a public activity, but one you participate in your garden, it was inevitable that the quest to become more comfortable in our bodies would lead to people organizing Naked Gardening Day events.

Some of these happen in one person’s garden; others take place in extensive co-op neighbourhood gardens on specially designated days. No matter how you look at it, Naked Gardening Day is a great event that’s bringing people together and freeing us from the confines of our cotton and polyester prisons.

How to celebrate Naked Gardening Day

Well, the easiest way to celebrate Naked Gardening Day is right there in the name, now isn’t it? Just get out there in the buff and do some weeding, plant some fresh tomatoes, or tend your flowers.

Being in your birthday suit under the gentle glow of the spring and summer sun is so freeing and refreshing, remember to slather down with sunblock to make sure you don’t grow more than plants! There’s no reason to keep these activities to Naked Gardening Day alone either! You can go out every day and spend some time with your skin and the sun while working in your garden.
