Center for Agricultural Development (CEDESA)
By Phyllis Culp
Centro de Desarrollo Agropecuario or Center for Agricultural Development (CEDESA) has been helping to develop sustainable practices in rural communities in the northern part of the State of Guanajuato for almost 50 years. A little more than a year ago, the last of CEDESA’s founding members passed away. New leadership often brings new directions. Join us as Holly Yasui, who lives in the eco-village and supports this grassroots training center, gives an update on what is happening at CEDESA, explains how UUFSMA donations are being used, and discusses some of the most recent successes and challenges of the organization.

Unitarian Universalists (UU) value the individual spiritual journey and practice a faith of deeds. Our presentations emphasize the values of community, spirituality, and social justice. The UU Fellowship meets every Sunday at 10:30am at La Posada de la Aldea, Ancha de San Antonio 15 and welcomes people of all ages, races, religions, sexual orientation, and gender identity. Visitors are invited to attend the service and then join the UUs for hospitality and discussion afterwards. For additional information, visit www.uufsma.org.
