Growing Together Mini-Campaign
Last summer, the Academy completed two major enhancements to our campus as we tied into the Town of Tyngsboro's sewer system and installed 22 light posts along the iconic front driveways. We are so grateful to the Sisters of Notre Dame and our Let There Be Light Donors for making those vital improvements possible.
As a result of these extensive, yet necessary projects, NDA lost some diseased trees that visitors were used to seeing when they entered campus off of Middlesex Road. We are excited to announce that we will begin a project to replace the trees and we invite our community to get involved.
We will begin our efforts to plant trees and shrubs on campus in support of our commitment to Laudato Si, Pope Francis’ encyclical on care for our common home – earth. During this first phase, we plan to plant five mature Ginkgo Biloba Trees to complement the new light posts that line our main driveway. The Gingko Biloba (also known as Maidenhair) is native to China and is known to help improve physical and mental health. These trees also happen to thrive in our New England climate!
We would like to offer our community the opportunity to adopt one of these five trees. With a gift of $10,000, supporters will receive a ground plaque in front of the tree to commemorate their contribution to this important project. We hope you’ll consider honoring a classmate, family member, student, faculty member, or friend by making a $10,000 pledge by August 31, 2023.
In the fall, the first five large trees will be planted across from each light post to further enhance the school’s entrance. They will be professionally cared for while they “put down roots” and will be a permanent fixture on our campus for many years to come. They will serve as a beautiful reminder of our obligation to protect nature and of the people for whom they are dedicated.
With the support of generous donors, we hope to be able to expand on this important project in the future. For more information or to adopt a tree, visit www.ndatyngsboro.org/growingtogether/ or call the Advancement Office at (978) 649-7611, Ext. 321.
