PSU Senior Capstone Project Fall 2006

This page is a culmination of links and documents that comprise our senior capstone project. The Natural Food Industry is the Capstone Class and this was the first time it was ever offered at PSU. This is the first Capstone Class that specifically focuses on business. Our instructor Pedro Ferbel, directed and exposed us to many different aspects of the Natural Food Industry. Two of the books we read during this course that do a very good job of helping to explain all aspects of food in our lives are: Omnivores Dilemma by Michael Pollan and Food Politics by Marion Nestle.

If you have not read them we would encourage you follow the links above to purchase them or borrow them from a friend.

Our committee researched non-profit corporations to find out the viabilty of possibly creating a non-profit arm for our community partner, Peoples Food Cooperative .

Our full report on non-profits may be viewed in PDF here.

For ease of use and viewing you may read it in HTML.
