Johan Scott, a retired policeman from Heidelberg, South Africa, had a shock when he got out of bed one morning. Scott discovered that someone had broken into his property while he was asleep. The thief had stolen some vegetables, including a cauliflower, from his kitchen garden.
Rather than getting the authorities involved, though, Scott decided to take matters into his own hands. But he didn’t arm himself and hunt down the thieves like a vigilante. Instead, he grabbed a shovel and took a more novel approach.
Scott had enjoyed a long and successful career with the police, working to make his part of South Africa a safer place. And although he is proud of his service, the 62-year-old knows that there is still a lot of work to do. Scott has also noticed that there are a lot of people going hungry in his neck of the woods.
