TAURANGA naturist Andrew Pointon is appealing his conviction for gardening and mowing his lawns in the nude.

Pointon was convicted of two offensive behaviour charges in May after a defended hearing.

Outside the High Court at Tauranga yesterday Pointon said he appealed because he believed he did not receive a fair hearing from the district court judge nor was he given sufficient time to prepare his defence case.

Justice Paul Heath reserved his decision.
