It’s World Naked Gardening Day, the only day of the year when exposing your private bits while hoeing around the garden is celebrated internationally.
Launched back in 2005, the unofficial event happens every first Saturday of May and encourages gardeners around the world to get out in the fields, bare ass exposed to the sun, to get dirty in the name of growing things in the earth.
This year is no different, with a wide range of gardeners peeling off their clothes and hopping into the middle of flowerbeds, greenhouses, and produce-harboring patches of dirt.
And lest anyone mistake the day as an excuse for perviness, the World Naked Gardening Day website makes it clear that this is all about having clean and innocent fun with nature.
“Gardening naked is not only a simple joy, it reminds useven if only for those few sunkissed minutesthat we can be honest with who we are as humans and as part of this planet,” reads the statement on the front page of the website.
And now, thanks to the magic of social media, we can show you just a few of the more glorious sights of humankind communing with nature, just as the universe intended.
It’s that day again! All in aid of the wonderful @perennialgrbs charity!! I’ve donated so now for the fun part!

Today is World Naked Gardening day. This is me loving life picking some of the chillies in our backyard. The Naughty Corner (my new home ) just acquired some new greenery last week too! We now have 2 chilli trees, mint, some sneaky succulent (that I may or may not have retrieved from around the Rosebery area), cacti, a Venus fly trap and some colourful shrubs. Love being naked outside… love my weird little plant collection. Come at me winter #worldnakedgardeningday #gardening #succulents #neoburlesque #showgirl #chilli #naked #thenaughtycorner
Yes, there are a few racier, NSFW garden photos out there, but you’ll have to discover those on your own. For now, bask in the innocent joy of humans plowing the fields in the only outfit nature ever meant for us to wear.
