About the Giving Garden

Located behind the Canton Library, the Giving Garden features raised-bed vegetable, herb, and flower boxes, as well as a certified Monarch Waystation.  The garden is used to teach various aspects of gardening and to raise awareness of the monarch butterfly.  

The Giving Garden is an education oriented joint initiative of the Haywood County Public Library, Haywood County Cooperative Extension Center, and teh Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Program.  

The garden is generously supported by the Haywood County Friends of the Library and the Haywood County Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Association.  

The garden is maintained by the work of volunteers.  New volunteers are always welcome! For information or to become a garden volunteer please contact the Canton Library:  828-648-2924 or
