On Sunday the 3rd, Ex Fabula hosted a Secret Fabula event at Sugar Bee Farm and the Energy Exchange. Members were treated to a behind-the-scenes look at this unique organization that included a tour, a chance to try delicious sautéed mushrooms with fresh greens, a game of trivia, and of course,  great stories!

The storytelling segment began with a tale from Beekeeper Sarah Christman who shared what she learned from the bees when she listened. Next, Sugar Bee Farm owner Sebastian Zoric Martinez shared a moving account of what led him to his work as a farmer. He said that agriculture is like life in that “there is always going to be another corner, so just get back to nourishing the soil and yourself; plant seeds and try again.” Lastly, Energy Exchange board member and microgreen grower Ryan Dale shared a secret about how his wife’s native Catalonia has one of the weirdest Christmas traditions on earth.
