PHOENIX (AP) - Bill Clinton says "everybody can serve everywhere" at a community service project in Phoenix that aims to convert vacant lots into urban gardens and spaces for public use.

The former president and his daughter, Chelsea, joined with Gabrielle Giffords at the Sunday event that was wrapping up the Clinton Global Initiative University weekend.

Bill Clinton picked up a shovel and helped volunteers dig an irrigation trench along a community garden on the 15-acre project.

Giffords says she's making progress after surviving an assassination attempt in Tucson in 2011.

The former congresswoman says "still trying to make the world a better place and you can, too."

The weekend conference was attended by more than 1,000 students.
