香港80後農夫 HK born Post-80s farmer 

Becky 是香港的「80後」, 大學畢業後曾在寫字樓打滾3年, 及後決定回歸農田園, 到成長的地方-馬屎埔-在馬寶寶社區農場當一個不折不扣的農夫。

由零開始, Becky 一步一步的去了解農夫的生活和耕作的一切。在訪問中她被問到為當上農夫而放棄一份穩定的工作, 會不會犧牲太多, 她說:「我並不認為如此。我們掙錢,是為了維持我們的生活。但生活是什麼呢?這是『衣、食、住、行』。而這一切農場都能給我。,我們種植我們自己的食物,跟本不需要購買任何食物。我根本不需要為了生活而去掙錢。」…

Post-80s farmer Becky Au gave up a career in the city to go back to her roots and run a farm in her native village of Ma Shi Po in Fanling, running the Ma Po Po Community Farm.

During the interview, Becky was asked if she thought it was too much of a sacrifice to quit a stable job, and she said, ‘ I don’t think so. We earn money so as to sustain our life. And what’s life? It’s “clothing, food, housing, transportation,” and I have everything I need here on the farm— we grow our own food, so we don’t have to buy any. It’s not necessary for me to get paid in order to live.’…
