A Grow It, Give It family
Scott and Rachael Johnstone and their five children are rearing a calf on their Pomborneit North beef farm this year for Grow It Give It. The family wanted to support a local charity and one specifically for children and their families.
“We count ourselves really lucky to have five healthy children and no major health problems along the way. We’re rearing one (calf) this year but the intention is we’ll rear one each year”
“We count ourselves really lucky to have five healthy children and no major health problems along the way. We’re rearing one (calf) this year but the intention is we’ll rear one each year (for the foundation) if we can. From our point of view the kids are rearing calves anyway. They’re able to take on an extra one and rear it and generate funds for the foundation.
You’re already doing what you’re doing. It’s a very easy way to contribute. It’s not a huge stretch to rear one more. They do know they’re helping someone and it’s good for them to know they’re giving something back.”
