The Summit County Seed Library is located at the Frisco branch of the Summit County Library. The Seed Library offers free access to seeds and seed-saving education. In order to access the seeds, you must have a Summit County Library card. Cards are free and can be obtained with proof of a valid local driver’s license.
Why is seed saving important?
Seed Security. If you control your seed, you control your food supply.
Regional Adaptation. Overtime, your seeds and crops will adapt to our micro-climate and become more resilient.
Consistent Quality. After a few seasons, seeds will have selected genetic traits suitable for your climate.
Preserving Heritage and Biodiversity. Maintaining variety or biodiversity among crops allows for food security and creates healthier soils. About 85% of seeds are controlled by large corporations, so the more seeds we can collect locally, the better food security our community will have.
