“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower” – Albert Camus

September 27, 2017

Dear Friend of Orgonomy:

With the first days of autumn now upon us, I am excited to tell you about our new ACO Living Campus Project. As you may know, over the past several years we have made an incredible amount of progress improving our Princeton campus by removing “detractors” (old outbuildings, swimming pool, tree stumps, brush, etc.) and making improvements. After much hard work, we are thankfully now at the point where our property is looking shipshape and we can begin adding “attractors.” What better way to start than by adding new life to our landscape with trees?

Early autumn is the perfect time for us to remove several old and unhealthy trees on the property (the last of our “detractors” - see photos of removal in process) and replace them with new ones that will grow strong and grace the landscape for generations to come.

We have already begun planting new trees with the future in mind. As you can see, our two Red Sunset Maples planted in 2016 are thriving and will bring much enjoyment thanks to their shade and brilliant fall colors in the years to come.

We invite you to take part in creating our Living Campus. There are two ways to participate:

Option 1 - General Contribution - Give a general contribution to the project, which will be put toward tree purchases and expenses. Any donation, no matter the size, makes a difference.

Option 2 - Select a tree - Select your favorite tree from the list below and contribute the listed amount. At the time of planting on the ACO campus, a permanent marker will be placed next to the tree stating the species and year planted, along with your name as donor or, if you wish, the tree can be dedicated to or planted in memory of someone. Our office staff will be in touch with you regarding the wording for your marker.

It is only with your generous help that we can continue to make strides in improving our campus and sharing what we have to offer to the world.

The ACO is a 501c3 non-profit organization, and all donations are tax deductible. You may send your contribution to us at the address below, call our office staff at (732) 821-1144, or donate or select a tree below. If you prefer, please call our office staff and they will be happy to assist you and answer any questions you may have about our Living Campus Project.

I hope to see you in the near future at one of the many events at our home and that our ACO Living Campus project will “bear fruit” so that you will be able to enjoy these beautiful trees with us in the spring. 

 

 

 

 

 

Sincerely,

Peter A. Crist, M.D.
President
