More naked calendars

Back on 11/11/14, I looked light-heartedly at naked calendars for charity, focusing (given my predilections) on calendars with naked hunky guys (carefully posed to avert X-rated images); I started with one called Hunks and Horses. Now I discover, on Facebook, that I have missed World Naked Gardening Day (which was on May 2nd this year) and, in a separate enterprise, the Perennial charity calendar of naked gardening guys,

On WNGD, from Wikipedia:

World Naked Gardening Day (WNGD) is an annual international event celebrated on the first Saturday of May by gardeners and non-gardeners alike. According to NBC’s Today News, WNGD “has become an annual tradition that celebrates weeding, planting flowers and trimming hedges in the buff. While it’s linked to a movement of nudists who promote wholesome and unashamed acceptance of the human body, the day is meant to be funny, lighthearted and non-political, founders say.”

WNGD is an earnest naturist event, open to both sexes and all ages (subject, I assume, to legal constraints) and all degrees of physical fitness. From its site:

People across the globe are encouraged … to tend their portion of the world’s garden unclothed as nature intended.

Now the charity Perennial. From the Gaily Grind’s jokey posting on the 2nd:

Get ready to spread your seed, it’s May 2, and that means it is officially World Naked Gardening Day!

If you have been looking for an excuse to do some naked gardening, drop your drawers and get down and dirty to celebrate the annual event (and please remember to spray on some insect/mosquito repellent.)

To help us get in the naked gardening mood, let’s take a look at some NSFW photos from this year’s Perennial’s charity calendar benefiting UK horticulturists [cover above].

Perennial supports horticulturists, young and old, who need support, advice and assistance in times of crisis. The charity is 175 years old this year and yet not many people – even in the trade – have heard about it. The Grubby Gardeners are doing all we can to raise awareness and money for this brilliant cause.

The men in the Perennial calendar are young and fit, but pretty clearly are not professional models; presumably, they’re actual naked gardeners.
