Lighthouse Sanctuary Garden

The members of the Oakville, Milton & District Real Estate Board (OMDREB) are raising funds to plant a garden at the Salvation Army Lighthouse Sanctuary in Oakville.  The Lighthouse is the only emergency shelter for all of the Halton Region, encompassing Burlington, Milton and Oakville. Many of the people who use the Shelter are women fleeing abusive relationships and individuals suffering from mental illness.  The Shelter is located in a non-residential area and surrounded by industrial buildings and concrete. The funds raised will transform a barren plot of land at the Shelter into a garden retreat by creating a garden walkway, planting the area, providing seating areas and reseeding grassless areas. The members wanted to assist the Shelter in providing a green sanctuary for the residents because "everyone deserves a place to shelter and heal".  For further information on this project go to
