Gardening in the Desert: We will be Moving!
Wish you all a very happy new year 2013! I hope all is well with you, family and of course planning for the spring gardening.
Here I would like to share one good news. Today accepted the job offer as a Head of the Geoinformatics Division at the International Center for Agricultural Research in Dry Areas (www.ICARDA.org). It is one of the research center of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (www.CGIAR.org), starting March 1, 2013, will based in Amman, Jordan (may be Morocco)!
It was tough decision considering other offers/counter offers from NASA/USGS/OU and wonderful friend circle of the Oklahoma. I have chosen CGIAR because it will give me an opportunity to develop geo-spatial technology and applications for agriculture and environmental security. Secondly its fits well into my personal interest and fashion about the agriculture, gardening, biodiversity, etc!
We will definitely miss you all and of course our Beautiful Garden in the backyard! We have established garden thinking we will stay here for longer! However time come to say good bye to (sell/rent) our sweat equity. I am hoping to find Home in Amman with an option to garden, even root top!
I have learned lot from this forum, thank you so much for you all, such a generous, knowledgeable and kind people. I will try my best to keep in touch with you all with this forum to further explore my fashion about the gardening and food security.
We wish you a wonderful year and happy gardening.
Regards -Chandra and Family
PS: I will update my new coordinates after March 1, 2013.
