nude-recreation_gardeningWell, Road Trips Gardeners: did you know that tomorrow, May 2, 2015, is World Naked Gardening Day?

In fact, it’s the tenth annual World Naked Gardening Day when people across the globe are encouraged to tend their gardens, flower boxes and yards clothed only as nature intended. Got a little plot of paradise fenced off at home? Then discard your inhibitions and stretch your personal barriers by pulling weeds and cultivating your herb, vegetable and flower garden with nothing between you and the sunshine but a bit of sunscreen.

Besides body acceptance and personal freedom, nude gardening is comfortable, saves on laundry, and makes for a quick personal clean up – just hose down.

Of course it’s sponsored by the American Association for Nude Recreation, which offers these tips:

1. Apply sunscreen liberally;

2. If you’re gardening at dawn or dusk, remember the bug repellant;

3. Prune roses, bougainvillea and other thorny plants with caution;

4. Don protective gardening gloves, hat and sun glasses;

5. Add to your comfort kneeling or sitting on a towel covered gardening mat;

6. Appreciate the health benefits: Studies indicate your body needs at least 20 minutes a day of sunshine over at least 75% of your body to help prevent a vitamin D deficiency.
