This Florida City Is Number One In America For Naked Gardening

As the weather gets warmer, some gardeners are shedding their clothes along with their inhibitions. Have you heard about the latest craze? Gardening in the nude. And Miami tops the list of the best cities for nude gardening in America. This may be your first time hearing about this, but I bet you’ll start looking a little more closely. Participants could be your very own neighbors. It’s a trend that’s sweeping the nation.

World Naked Gardening Day is THIS Saturday, May 6th. You may be thinking..is this really a thing? According to its official website, the day is all about promoting “body-positive values and respect for oneself, for others and for the planet.” In other words, it’s a chance to strip away the social norms and cultural expectations that dictate how we should look and behave, and just be ourselves in all our natural glory. And what better way to do that than by getting a little dirt on your bits and pieces?

If you’ve ever wondered where the best naked gardening cities in the country are, LawnStarter got down and dirty and has the list. To compile the data they looked at metrics like nudist population size, indecent exposure laws, weather and access to waxing salons just to name a few.

This Saturday, Florida, it’s your chance give naked gardening a try. Just be sure to wear sunscreen and watch out for those thorny bushes.
