'cultivated' is the definition.
The answer and definition can be both to do with creating things as well as being past participle verbs.

'journalist' becomes 'ed' (short for editor).

'is' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for reared that I've seen before include "Raised" , "Brought up, nurtured" , "upright" , "Trained" , "Provided and cared for during childhood" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
