It was a beautiful sunny day to enjoy time working in the garden and making my property look beautiful.
Each year on the first Saturday of May people all around the world take part in World Naked Gardening Day (WNGD). This event is enjoyed by gardeners and non-gardeners alike. “WNGD is endorsed by The Naturist Society, Clothes Free International and American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR), among others. As of 2012, WNGD is currently a collaborative project of the Naturist Education Foundation, Inc.” (via WNGD Wikipedia)
I first participated in the day 3 years ago and have enjoyed it each year since. One day I hope to do it as a part of a collaborative event and hopefully in a public venue so we can educate the public about the benefits of naturism. I look forward to the WNGD each yeah and enjoy planting flowers and getting my yard looking beautiful.
WNGD also encourages body positivity just like many other nude events that I have attended. Each year that passes I feel the positivity toward my own nude body growing.
“Beyond body positivity, Corky Stanton of Clothes Free International, an organization that promotes nude recreation, has asserted that the event offers the “fringe benefits of bare, unabashed recreation: the satisfaction of exercising in the great outdoors; the attractiveness of an all-over tan; more Vitamin D on your whole body; the unbeatable experience of skinny-dipping if the naturist event involves a beach or a lake.” (via WNGD Wikipedia)
Since the inception of WNGD, the event has grown and has been featured in various top 10 lists. A person does not necessarily need to be outside to participate but it’s encouraged for the positive health effects from natural Vitamin D. I hope you will join me and many others next May 2023 for WNGD.
