  • Free Admission

This is a unique opportunity to own a limited edition kauri grown from the seeds of the trees harvested from McCahon House's ground.

Not only will your purchase help continue McCahon’s legacy, planting kauri will help ensure the future of this mighty native tree in the face of kauri dieback disease. Generating awareness of kauri dieback is essential. The more people that are aware of this disease and what they can do, the more likely we are to limit its spread - and hopefully find a cure.

The trees will be available to purchase at the McCahon Kauri Community Day.

The day features talks from Dr Nick Waipara of Auckland Council, a leading specialist in biosecurity; Sarah Smuts-Kennedy, a former McCahon House artist-in-residence and bio-dynamic gardener; and Julia Waite, curator of “Freedom & Structure: Cubism and New Zealand Art 1930 – 1960”, a painting show currently touring New Zealand which includes McCahon’s French Bay and kauri paintings.

If you wish to reserve a tree in advance, email mccahon@mccahonhouse.org.nz or call 09 817 6148. You will need to collect your tree(s) from Titirangi War Memorial Hall on Sunday 6 August.

Anyone is welcome to attend the McCahon Kauri Community Day. Money raised will go towards the work of the McCahon House Trust and The Kauri Project.
