The idea for the Mass Aggie Seed Library was proposed in Fall 2018 by an undergraduate biology student.  The seed library space is housed in the University of Massachusetts Amherst Science & Engineering Library on the 3rd floor.  The library contains a collection of donated open-pollinated seeds along with materials for loan to encourage and aid in seed saving.
