    Master gardener William Moss discusses the benefits of volunteering in a community garden.

    William Moss: Everyday is Earth Day and until we establish colonies on the moon, this is the only place we have got. One of the easiest ways to improve the earth and your community is to volunteer at a local garden. Schools, churches, the block clubs, urban farms, retirement homes and community gardens need your help. Things like cleaning the garden up, composting, planting, weeding all those are just some of the task that they can use your help with. And you don't need much to be a volunteer; all you really need is a comfortable set of clothes and a good attitude. But a hat, some shades, pruners and gloves, depend on what you're doing, will also be a big help. Volunteering is a great way to get some exercise, spend time with friends and learn about gardening. You don't need a special occasion, a lot of money, or even garden expertise to help the earth. All you need to do is get out and volunteer at a local garden. Get out and grow!
