A Brief Blog Profile: Gardening Nude
by Thomas Hynes
I know what you're thinking. You see a blog name like Gardening Nude and you're thinking: 'Watch out for the hedge clippers!' Then you might next say something along the lines of: 'Hide the garden shears!" At which point, I'd have to tell you A) this isn't that kind of website, and B) grow up. Gardening Nude is a green blog. The nudity in question refers to living simply. Or better yet, it's a metaphor for a cleaner, less encumbered way of living. Still, be warned. If you're going to google "Gardening Nude" make sure it's not set to return images. Seriously.
Gardening Nude is run by Shawna Coronado. Today, she speaks at events and writes books. She also still maintains this blog, too. And on the blog, you'll find tips on eco travel, money saving tips, green family issues, and lots more. In her own words, she says, "Gardening nude means to live more simply. When you choose 'Gardening Nude' you choose sustainability over wastefulness."
Gardening Nude has a ton of everyday, practical tips. For instance, you can save water (and money) by turning off the faucet while brushing your teeth. There's also this piece about how eating organically is good for your health, the environment and your wallet. These are real things that people can do immediately to start living greener. And the site's full of dozens of more posts just like these. The site's got a lot to offer.... Just don't expect any nudity.
