For the last couple of weeks, mounting pressure from family commitments, work and research projects have been taking its toll on my “aquaponics time”. Recently, these little distractions culminated in the news that a job that I have applied for months ago had finally come through, and that I will be heading off to Cape Town, 800 km from where I live now. I do not have much time to get all my things in order, and part of what I would like to sort out are the pages that I have started over here on the forum.
I’m sure Sylvia may have some suggestions as well, but as I have always kept the page rules relatively lax, I’m sure it will be possible for other individuals to add discussions without any problems. The advanced aquaponics, mixed aquaponics design and South African pages are all open for members to steer from this point forward. Who decides to do this is up to the community to decide as I will likely not be around too often and really do not want to try and hand pick anyone myself.
While I will be stepping away from tinkering to take up a post in a rather unfamiliar government context, I wish everyone here the best with their endeavours. I’m sure to come in and take a peek at what you guys are up to from time to time and will, in future, probably get a system up again as soon as I find a property to buy on the other side (job allowing).
I have resigned from the Aquaponics Association board with immediate effect today as well. While it feels a bit as if I am stepping away from aquaponics abruptly, I’m sure my path will continue to cross with aquaponics and urban agriculture in my new role at the Select Committee for Land and the Environment. For members from my part of the world, there may be some system components up for grabs soon. I’ll keep you guys posted.
Regards and respect
