In 2011, we embarked on an exciting journey by acquiring Widget Grove, a captivating 2-acre haven nestled within the heart of a semi-residential suburb in Baranduda, Victoria, Australia. Our story began as a fusion of passions, with a fervent desire to build a nourishing "forever" home.  

Jan and I have both studied and then worked with technology for our careers.   I had also just completed local college classes in Visual Arts and Permaculture.  We wanted a space to experiment and create with gardening, arts & technology all in one place so the vision of "Widget Grove" was born.

Widget Grove is more than a piece of land.  We set out to cultivate a space where plants and creativity would thrive side by side. Our goal was to establish an environment that not only echoed the principles of sustainability; artistic expression but to showcase cutting-edge technology as well.   Over the years, Widget Grove has transformed into a captivating narrative of growth, where each leaf and brushstroke tells a story of passion and dedication.

As we move forward, Widget Grove remains an evolving story, an ongoing adventure of discovery, creativity, and the harmonious coexistence of diverse elements.   We invite you to be part of our narrative, to explore the gardens, engage with the artistry, and join us in embracing the ever-changing journey that is Widget Grove.
