McCahon Kauri Community Day

Date: Sunday 6 August 2017

Time: 11am - 4pm

Venue: Titirangi War Memorial Hall, 500 South Titirangi Road, Auckland.


This is an 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.


Six hundred of the trees will be available to purchase for $50 each and they will be released as a 2017 limited edition. Each tree will be accompanied by a booklet, recording its unique edition number, along with information about its heritage, and how to plant and care for the sapling.


The trees will be available to purchase during McCahon Kauri Community Day.  The day also 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 biodynamic gardener; and Julia Waite, curator of Freedom & Structure, 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 us at You will need to collect your tree(s) from Titirangi War Memorial Hall on Sunday 6 August. .


Growing the seedlings and the fundraising event is a collaborative project between the McCahon House Trust, The Kauri Project, Auckland Botanic Gardens and Auckland Council Biosecurity. Money raised will go towards the work of the McCahon House Trust and The Kauri Project.
