The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) will host Food for Thought: Every Seed has a Story with Deborah Larkin June 15 at the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History in Frankfort.

The heirloom vegetables, herbs and flowers that people eat, savor and enjoy each come with unique histories. Larkin, a specialist in heirloom plants and their traditional uses, will share techniques on seed saving and heirloom gardening. Larkin worked as horticulturist/herbalist at Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill for 27 years.

The menu for the luncheon features crudités with Benedictine dip, spinach salad, grilled chicken, farm stand corn salad, country-style green beans, honey cornbread muffins, blackberry cobbler and iced tea or coffee.

Tickets to the Food for Thought luncheon, which is part of the KHS Highlighting History series, are $18 for KHS members and $23 for other patrons.
