Volunteers launch crowdfunding effort for Tesmer Farm Safety Day Camp

Each May, Extension coordinates the Tesmer Farm Safety Day Camp for youth in Fillmore and Houston counties to experience potentially life-saving lessons on farm and ag safety. The program is named for long-time Extension educator Jerry Tesmer, who championed farm safety in his teaching to youth and adults. Jerry began the program in collaboration with community members 25 years ago.

Volunteers in Houston and Fillmore Counties have launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise dollars for this program in honor of Jerry. If you'd like to learn more or make a contribution, visit crowdfund.umn.edu/farmsafetydaycamp.
