CEDESA is a grassroots campesino organization addressing land and water issues, eco-technologies, organic farming and soil conservation, alternative and natural health,cooperative agricultural production, community marketing, and rural tourism. A day-trip tour visits their facilities in Dolores Hidalgo where they have model eco-technologies (rainwater harvesting systems, dry composting toilets, grey-water recycling and drip-irrigation) on site, then visits a rural community where these technologies have been implemented. The cost is $250 pesos per person, plus transportation from San Miguel and interpreter services if needed, and includes an organic lunch and transportation to and from the community.
