Don’t be alarmed if your neighbour is out gardening naked this weekend.

This Saturday is World Naked Gardening Day, an annual international event celebrated on the first Saturday of May by gardeners and non-gardeners alike.

World Naked Gardening Day has become a day that highlights the art of weeding, planting flowers and trimming hedges in the buff.

The day is dedicated to those who like to dig around in the dirt without getting their clothes mussed up. It’s a day filled with beaming sunshine (hopefully), some exposed skin, and plenty of healthy gardening productivity.

While it’s linked to a movement of nudists who promote wholesome and unashamed acceptance of the human body, the World Naked Gardening Day is meant to be funny, lighthearted and non-political, founders say.
