On May 5 this year is celebration of the World Naked Gardening Day. The international day is celebrated on the first Saturday of May and aims to encourage people to embrace nature while enjoying some light-hearted fun.
Horticulturalists celebrate world naked gardening day (WNGD) by watering the plants and trimming their bushes, planting flowers, completely nude. The day is meant to be funny, lighthearted and non-political, founders say. WNGD was founded by Mark Storey consulting editor for Nude & Natural magazine and permaculturalist Jacob Gabriel, as a project of Body Freedom Collaborative, in 2005. "No particular organization owns World Naked Gardening Day," Storey said.
So the WNGD is already an entertainment day but there are some other motivations to sustain it. “The human immune system is stronger when it gets exposed to different critters,” Sue Erich, the director of the Maine Soil Testing Service on campus, said this week. Exposure to dirt - and all the bacteria, germs and other microscopic life within it - actually can be beneficial to humans, according to the University of Maine soil scientist. Naked individuals and groups are encouraged to adopt the day for themselves. As many others global events, celebration of the WNGD has opponents too. They elaborated a list of bad things which can happen but our advice is to not consider any opinion as a golden rule. Just be positif and all will be ok !
