It is the seventh day of May "World Naked Gardening Day"
World Nude Gardening Day (WNGD) is an annual international event that is generally observed on the first Saturday of May,by gardeners and non-gardeners alike.
When did the global disappearance start?
The first World Nude Gardening Day was held on 10 September 2005. In 2007, the event date was moved to the first Saturday of May; As of 2018, the event still occurs on the first Saturday in May.
However, in 2018, the New Zealand Natural Federation adopted the last weekend in October as International Naked Gardening Day; Consider this date a better fit for the climate of the southern hemisphere.
The organization was founded by Mark Story (consultant and editor at Naked and Natural magazine) and Jacob Gabriel Yale Farms, as the Body and Freedom Project (BFC). In its early days, Storey had a vision of the BFC's involvement in a "guerrilla feint" such as jumping out of a truck or appearing spontaneously in an urban setting and engaging in gardening.
In the New York Daily News, Storey noted that their organization is not owned by any one organization. “No particular organization has International Naked Gardening Day,” Storey said, and it's not actually a large gathering of gardeners in Seattle who strip and cut some bushes together. "
While the phenomenon quickly spread internationally, its founders made little investment. “Story said that he and Johnson haven’t spent any money or made significant efforts to promote International Naked Gardening Day since they started it. They helped set up a website early on, then receded into the background. They meant that the idea of an introduction to freedom of clothing through gardening was valuable and would grow organically alone".

While it is associated with the movement of nudists who promote the proper and bodily acceptance of the human body, the day is meant to be Funny, entertaining and apolitical, say the founders.
Organizers assert that “besides being liberating, nude gardening is second only to swimming as an activity that people are more willing to consider doing.”
