Doug Fabbioli is concerned about the future of the rural economy,as cities'areas expand into farm fields.Fabbioli owns a winery in Loudoun County,Virginia.He decided to support the agricultural economy in his own way.He established The New AG School.The free school hopes to raise the next generation of farmers.


道格·法比奥利(Doug Fabbioli)对农村经济的未来感到担忧,因为城市地区正在向农田扩张。法比奥利在弗吉尼亚州劳顿县拥有一家酒厂。他决定以自己的方式支持农业经济。他建立了新的AG学校。免费学校希望培养下一代农民。


Farming is hard work,but Fabbioli says young people would love it if they knew its joys.But,he says,to succeed in farming,they will need specialized skills.


农业是一项艰苦的工作,但法比奥利说,如果年轻人知道它的乐趣,他们会喜欢它的。但是,他说,要想在农业上取得成功,他们需要专业技能。


That is what Fabbioli hopes to teach at his new school.The goal is to fill the immediate need for farm workers,but also to create future leaders who can teach others in years to come.


这就是法比奥利希望在他的新学校教的东西。我们的目标是满足农场工人的迫切需要,同时也创造未来的领导者,在未来几年里可以教导其他人。


The New AG School has many different students.


新的AG学校有许多不同的学生。

"We have some younger folks that are either right out of high school or even in high school,"Fabbioli says.He also has some students who have completed college but cannot find jobs,as well as older people who want to try farming.


法比奥利说:“我们有些年轻人要么刚高中毕业,要么就上高中了。”。他还有一些大学毕业但找不到工作的学生,还有一些想尝试种田的老人。


Olga Goadalupe Alfoseca says the program is helping her find the right career."I learned a lot...my dream is maybe I can plant my own plants and start my...business."


奥尔加·戈达卢佩·阿尔弗塞卡说,这个项目正在帮助她找到合适的职业。”我学到了很多…我的梦想是也许我可以种植我自己的植物,开始我的。。。商业。”


Liam Marshall-Brown who left college,finds farm work interesting."It's fun,"he says."I mostly did restaurants before...you feel trapped after a while,doing the same thing over and over and over again.It's just nice to be outside.Pretty much you're doing something new every day."


从大学毕业的利亚姆·马歇尔·布朗发现农活很有趣。”“很有趣,”他说我以前经常去餐馆…过了一段时间你会觉得被困住了,一遍又一遍地做同样的事情。在外面真好。你几乎每天都在做新的事情。”


But not all work is outdoors.Students study five different subjects,everything from cleaning,horticulture,hospitality,to leadership and business.


但并不是所有的工作都是户外的。学生们学习五门不同的课程,从清洁、园艺、招待到领导和商业。


And the training is not complete until they learn about the machines they use every day;how they work and how to fix them.


直到他们了解他们每天使用的机器,他们如何工作以及如何修理机器,培训才算完成。


As you might expect from a winery owner,wine production is also part of the educational program.


正如你对酒厂老板的期望,葡萄酒生产也是教育项目的一部分。


Winemaker Meaghan Tardif is a mentor at the school...she teaches students winemaking–and leadership skills.


酿酒师Meaghan Tardif是学校的导师。。。她教学生酿酒和领导技能。


"My favorite part about being a mentor is I always give the student a chance to teach someone else,"Tardif explains."Leadership is everywhere.It's not just in the work.It's not just your employees,but it helps you throughout your life."


塔迪夫解释说:“我最喜欢做导师的部分是,我总是给学生一个机会去教别人。”领导无处不在。不仅仅是在工作中。这不仅是你的员工,而且对你的一生都有帮助。”


The experience has caused Marshall-Brown to find a future in agriculture.


这一经历使马歇尔·布朗在农业上找到了未来。


"I would like to be that,but I still have a lot to learn to be able to do that.Hopefully I'll get there,and I'll run my own farm one day and have people work under me."


“我很想成为那样的人,但我还有很多东西要学,才能做到这一点。希望我能到那里,有一天我会经营自己的农场,让别人在我手下工作。”


That pleases Fabbioli,who says it is good for the community to have more farmers.


法比奥利很高兴,他说社区有更多的农民是好事。


He notes Loudoun Country's position as one of the richest areas in the nation.He says the goal of those living in the community is to save the land in western Loudoun County as green space.


他指出,娄东国家的地位,作为一个最富裕的地区在全国。他说,居住在社区里的人的目标是把劳敦县西部的土地作为绿地来保护。


In his words,"We can do that by farming,but we need more farmers very much.So,giving people the opportunity to learn,put more people to work.It may also keep the cars off the highways because they're living locally and they're working locally."


用他的话说,“我们可以通过耕种来做到这一点,但我们非常需要更多的农民。所以,给人们学习的机会,让更多的人去工作。这也可能会让汽车远离高速公路,因为他们住在当地,在当地工作。”


That is what the New AG School hopes to do--grow the next"crop"of skilled farmers.


这就是新的农业学校希望做的事情——种植下一批有技能的农民。
