Our club has installed and currently maintains several gardens throughout the Canton community.
BICENTENNIAL PARK - NEW PROJECT IN 2022 IN PROGRESS
We applied and received grant funding from the Canton Greater Together Community Fund at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving on June 1 to install a pollinator garden and pathway at the Bicentennial Park in Canton. The project is currently underway.
In 2009, club member Eveyln M. Betz designed and installed a Native Plant Garden at the front of the Canton Library. In 2016, club members Karen Berger and Anne Duncan designed a pollinator garden at the back of the library/community center and purchased new plants and shrubs with club funding. Club members removed old plant material and installed the new plants and shrubs. Members continue to maintain garden beds around the library and community center.
BANDSTAND ON THE GREEN
In 2012, new plants and shrubs were installed around the bandstand and flagpole. Members maintain the garden beds around the bandstand, flag pole, and the town entrance sign. Seasonal plants are added to the flower boxes on the bandstand.
Our club purchased four plant containers located along the Farmington River Trail in Collinsville. We install and maintain the plants in the containers on a seasonal basis.
