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.
