World Naked Gardening Day

World Naked Gardening Day World Naked Gardening Day

Saturday, May 6th. 2023 at the Everson Ranch

The ranch will open at 9:00am. We start to work at 9:30am and continue as long as people like to help that day.

This is a free, fun, lighthearted and liberating event. Gardeners and non gardeners of all ages are welcome.

On 5.6.2023 gardeners all over the world are getting together to shed some or all their clothes to attend to the gardens and connect with the natural world. This year OLT again is joining this annual event at the Everson Ranch and we are inviting you to celebrate with us gardening in the open. We might use your help in the greenhouses, the garden and grounds keeping. Weeding and planting gladiolus bulbs might be on the menu as well.

You might want to dress in layers since the weather in early May at the ranch is unpredictable. It could be mild and comfortable but it could also be windy and cool. Precipitation, rain or snow, is also a possibility.

Please bring: Solid shoes, sunscreen, sun hat, sun glasses, water bottle, and gardening gloves. You might like to bring your lunch to enjoy after gardening. After lunch there will be a tour of the ranch for those that are interested. If you are thinking of trying naked gardening or just would like to experience working in the garden at the Everson Ranch, please come and join us!
