World Naked Gardening Day on this Saturday

John was rigorous about adhering to his rostered sprinkler days.

LET’s face it – who doesn’t enjoy a spot of naked gardening?

Whether it be a quick bit of mulching or pruning the roses (careful!) – there’s not much that beats the illicit thrill of striding out into the backyard clad in nothing but your weeding gloves.

This Saturday May 5, people across the globe are encouraged to tend their patch of the Earth as nature intended.

You don’t even have to go outside – what better way to water your planter box than sans clothing?

Need to re-pot that lemon tree? Strip off before digging the hole – it’s a barrel of fun.

Gardening has a timeless quality, and anyone can do it: young or old, singles or groups, fit or infirm, urban or rural.

We don’t recommend you follow all the advice on the World Naked Gardening Website, such as “rapid clothes-free sorties into public parks to do community-friendly stealth cleanups”.

But why not get into the spirit this Saturday and try a spot of gardening au naturel?
