The New Zealand Homœopathic Society was formed by Alfred George Grove, a lay practitioner, and a group of his patients and friends on 26 February 1951. The objectives of the Society were then, as they are today, to promote and support the use of homœopathy in New Zealand and to ensure information was readily available for anyone interested in learning more about Homeopathy. Alfred Grove was the Society’s first president. He and the members of that time presented monthly lectures about homœopathy. Some of his dedicated supporters travelled around NZ and held meetings in town halls that were frequently filled with enthusiastic locals. Mr Grove began to import homœopathic books, which instigated the Society’s book selling operation. Sixty years on, homœopathy has continued to grow in New Zealand and the New Zealand Homœopathic Society has grown along with it and has continued to develop into a vibrant and cooperative organisation.
The Homœopathic Society is run by a small team of very dedicated volunteers who come together every Wednesday at the Homœopathic Centre in Mt Eden, Auckland. New volunteers are warmly welcomed.
