Edible ODU Spotlights Campus Efforts at Producing Food

Old Dominion's new Broderick Dining Commons is a beacon not only for University students, staff and faculty, but also for the community.

The striking new facility will serve as the host venue for the first Lifelong Learning at Old Dominion University event of 2017, Edible ODU.

Featuring Chad Peevy, manager of grounds, and Old Dominion Executive Chef Bob Patten, the Feb. 21 luncheon will feature a tutorial about ODU's campus-grown fruits, herbs and vegetables, such as Swiss chard, rosemary, blueberries, pecans and peaches. The event, which will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the President's Dining Room, also will include a pasta-making session, followed by a pasta luncheon.

The event is $15, to be paid at the door. Seating is limited, so reservations are required by Friday, Feb. 17 at www.odu.imodules.com/LLF17, or by calling 757-683-3116. Free parking is available in the Webb University Center VIP lot.

Lifelong Learning at Old Dominion University is designed to connect campus to community, offering diverse educational and outreach programs to people of all ages, though it is geared toward retirees. Lifelong Learning events feature University faculty and staff, demonstrating the broad array of community-focused services provided by Old Dominion.
