Congratulations, home gardeners: the annual World Naked Gardening Day (WNGD) is happening Saturday, May 7.
In case you’ve never heard of it, WNGD is an annual event that takes place on the first Saturday of May each year:
Events like WNGD can help develop a sense of community among people of every stripe. Taking part in something that is bigger than any one household, naturist group, or gardening club can move gardeners with an ‘au naturel joie de vivre’ toward becoming a community. And in the case of WNGD, it’s fun, costs no money, runs no unwanted risk, reminds us of our tie to the natural world, and does something good for the environment.
Not everyone has the luxury of outdoor gardening — especially when it comes to home-growing cannabis, our personal favorite. But if you’ve got the venue — or find yourself feeling a little risque this Saturday — get outside, take your clothes off, and plant something!
U.S. weather reports predict a spattering of spring storms across the Great Plains this weekend, with uncharacteristic sunshine imminent in the Northwest region. So wherever you are, maybe consider consulting a local weather report, but we hope that the prospects of a little muddy gardening or lightening showers won’t deter you.
