Come and visit the Kauri Rescue stand at the MaCahon Kauri Project, on Sunday August 6 at the Titirangi War Memorial Hall.
The McCahon Kauri Project is a collaborative project to both fund raise and regenerate kauri growth, six hundred disease free 'McCahon kauri' saplings will be available to purchase at a free Kauri Community Day on 6 August in Titirangi at the Titirangi War Memorial Hall.
The saplings are available to order now directly from firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 09 817 6148.
If you don't have room for a tree in your backyard, you can be a sponsor and the tree will be provided to a suitable home and you will receive a commemorative numbered booklet about the project.
The trees are $50 each and in keeping with their legacy, 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.
Public discussion from 1:00pm - 2:30pm
