Nashville, Tenn. - The Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) has halted online orders for free milkweed seed, as part of its Project Milkweed, due to overwhelming demand. The new online offering launched in June 2023 as a mail-order resource aimed at restoring landscapes and preserving habitats for monarch butterflies and other pollinator species. Since June, TDOT has taken nearly 131,000 individual orders from Tennesseans for milkweed seed. In total, 779,601 Red and Common Milkweed seed packets were requested. This program will return in June 2024.
