Saturday is World Naked Gardening Day. Yes, it’s really a holiday. Thank you Tim from Florida for letting me know. This is the kind of news I love sharing.
The holiday is the first Saturday of May so this year Saturday, May 1, 2021 will mark the 17th annual World Naked Gardening Day. While I don’t expect this will be observed at the communal city gardens in Boston, I do wonder if anyone reading with a private garden or backyard intends to “be at one with nature”.
The holiday was started in 2005 by Mark Story in Seattle, WA and has grown into a global phenomenon. I was surprised to read Boston was ranked as one of the top 12 cities in the US for observing World Naked Gardening Day in 2020. I should clarify that the benchmarks that placed Boston at the 11th best city were based off of climate measurements.
Let me know if you intend to participate in World Naked Gardening Day 2021. Leave a comment in this post or send a discreet photo to firstname.lastname@example.org of you gardening in the buff.
