    Datla Venkateswarlu, a security guard at Singareni Collieries Company Limited (SCCL), is passionate about environmental conservation. He gives away free saplings to the public from his home in Yellandu. Venkateswarlu has turned his home into a nursery for fruit trees, exotic flowers, and medicinal plants.

    In an interview with The Hans India, Venkateswarlu explained that he gets plants from various sources like the forest department, SCCL, and friends who have extra plants. He also collects seeds and saplings from blooming plants found on the streets. Inspired by environmental activist Vanajeevi Ramaiah and his father Datla Ramulu, Venkateswarlu started distributing plants in 2005 to promote environmental protection.

    To expand his reach, Venkateswarlu sometimes gives out plants at busy intersections in Yellandu. He believes that sharing plants and educating others about greenery brings him joy. His dedication to the cause has earned him awards like the Dr BR Ambedkar Fellowship Award and the Mana Telugu Tejam Award.

    Venkateswarlu was thrilled when Vanajeevi Ramaiah visited him in Yellandu to appreciate his work. He always gives at least one plant to friends, family, and guests who visit his home so they can grow it at their own place.
