The Canton Garden Club plants seasonal flowers at the three watering troughs, the six "Welcome to Canton" flower boxes, and the boxes at the Historical Society and Canton Library. In May, members are asked to sign up to water and maintain these town plantings during the summer and early fall. In observance of Arbor Day in April, the Garden Club plants a tree at a predetermined site in Canton.
