World Naked Gardening Day
World Naked Gardening Day was founded and organized by Mark Storey and Jacob Gabriel, as a project of Body Freedom Collaborative. Storey is the consulting editor for Nude & Natural magazine and Gabriel is a permaculturalist. The Magazine of Naturist Living or simply N magazine, is a quarterly naturist magazine published by The Naturist Society Foundation in Oshkosh, Wisconsin and distributed throughout the United States and internationally.
“Storey has reportable said that he and Johnson haven’t spent any money or gone to any great lengths to promote World Naked Gardening Day. They helped create a website and that was about it hoping that the idea of an introduction to “clothes freedom” through gardening was valuable and would grow organically on its own. This day is just supposed to be light hearted and funny.
WNGD is endorsed by The Naturist Society, Clothes Free International and American Association for Nude Recreation.
The first annual World Naked Gardening Day took place on September 10, 2005 but was eventually moved to May 1st. Other countries celebrate it on different days.
