Noluthando is a result-driven woman with passion for environmental conservation, making Bestgrovers Trading & Projects 60 a force to reckon with in the environmental management industry. The company has won tenders in the Department of Environmental Affairs consistently since 2011. Her skills include basic Bookkeeping & Accounting, Sales & Marketing, First Aid and extensive skills in invasive Alien Plant Control and Maintenance including Herbicde Aplicator.

The name “Bestgrovers” means that we strive to excel in every project we take and are indeed being propelled to achieve our objectives. We seek to inspire every South African to contribute their bit to saving our environment. Walking home one day, Noluthando came across a beautiful flower. She picked it up and took it home where she planted with excitement. Later on decided to ask someone what flower it was, only to find out it was one of the invasive alien plants. That is how Bestgrovers was born.

The Environmental challenge we all face:

The business address the urgent challenge to manage alien plans and related water consumption and blocking of rivers.

  • Invasive alien species are plants, animals and microbes that are introduced into countries, and then out-compete the indigenous species.
  • Invasive alien plants (IAPs) pose a direct threat not only to South Africa’s biological diversity, but also to water security, the ecological functioning of natural systems and the productive use of land. They intensify the impact of fires and floods and increase soil erosion. IAPs can divert enormous amounts of water from more productive uses and invasive aquatic plants, such as the water hyacinth, effect agriculture, fisheries, transport, recreation and water supply.
  • Of the estimated 9000 plants introduced to this country, 198 are currently classified as being invasive. It is estimated that these plants cover about 10% of the country and the problem is growing at an exponential rate.
  • The fight against invasive alien plants is spearheaded by the Working for Water (WfW) programme, launched in 1995 and administered through the Department of Water Affairs and Forestry. This programme works in partnership with local communities, to whom it provides jobs, and also with Government departments including the Departments of Environmental Affairs and Tourism, Agriculture, and Trade and Industry, provincial departments of agriculture, conservation and environment, research foundations and private companies.
