Goedgedacht Trust

Goedgedacht Trust

The Goedgedacht Trust is an Educational & Charitable Trust, working on poverty issues of poor farm workers in the Swartland area. The trust was established in 1993 and took its name from the farm on which it is found, Goedgedacht, situated on the slopes of Kasteelberg near Riebeek Kasteel. The farm itself is a beautiful Cape Dutch farm dating back to 1704, and the property and building have been beautifully restored, bringing back some of the grandeur of the Old Cape Colony era. The farm makes an ideal venue for conferences, workshops, weddings and retreats, with the tranquility and beautiful scenery contributing to whatever you do.
Apart from their function venues the farm has been planted with 9000 olive trees over 27 hectares and now produces organically grown olives that are either bottled or cold pressed into a top quality extra virgin olive oil and marketed under the Goedgedacht label.
During your time at Goedgedacht you can also enjoy some time birdwatching, with sightings of over 80 different species recorded on the farm. There are also 3 well marked walking trails on the farm. The Yellow trail is the easiest and covers the lower half of the farm. This is suited to the less fitter or elderly person. The Blue Trail is somewhat more difficult as it more hilly and covers the upper part of the farm. And finaly the Red Trail which is the most difficult of the walks. It also covers the upper parts of the farm. It is recommended that you have an above average fitness level and that you walk with a partner on this trail. For those interested there are dams located on the farm, some of which are stocked with large mouth bass for fishing and one of which is set aside for swimming in. Nothing beats a dip in the cool water in the middle of a hot summers day. The trust has also recently completed the building of a floodlit rugby field which it hopes top teams will utilize for training and matches. And there is a netball court for use by the children who come to the youth centre in the afternoons.

By hosting your next Team Building, Conference or Retreat at Goedgedacht, or, by getting married on the farm, you will be supporting the work of the Goedgedacht Trust.
