Hlengiwe Luthuli Experience
Hlengiwe Luthuli has worked together with and has been trained and mentored by me Michael Hickman of Ecoman since 2008, firstly on the eThekwini Municipality Green Roof Pilot Project, thereafter I have been involved in the planning and implementation of a number of other green roof projects. I have also been involved in many landscape projects utilising only local indigenous plants from design to implementation, rehabilitation of coastal dune systems, rehabilitation of natural ecosystems and alien invasive weed control in sensitive natural ecosystems.
For the last two years I have worked for Ziyenzeka Weed Control firstly as team manager doing alien weed control as part of the rehabilitation project at the King Shaka International Airport. I am presently managing the invasive alien eradication and control project at Mount Moreland Conservancy for Ziyenzeka Weed Control.  Michael Hickman of Ecoman has provided environmental and technical direction where required on both projects.
