MEGlobal Prentiss – A great neighbour to nature!

Ellis Bird Farm

  • When Charlie Ellis sold his farm to Union Carbide 40 years ago he took a leap of faith.  Some would say he jumped right out of the tallest tree.  Charlie wanted to retire and he was desperate to ensure the home he created for his beloved birds would live on after him.   Rather than sell to another farmer, Ellis took a gamble.  The slight old farmer from south east of Lacombe made a deal with the multi-national company.  He’d sell his land to them if they’d promise to take care of his birds and the sanctuary he and his sister Winnie had created.

    There was a lot of tension and doubt at first… but Union Carbide would prove to be trustworthy.  They kept the promise they made to Charlie.  And years later when MEGlobal bought Union Carbide’s Prentiss operation, Charlie’s birds were part of the deal.

    There’s no doubt Charlie Ellis would be thrilled to know just how well that promise he made so many decades ago… lives on.  MEGlobal Prentiss Site Leader David Miller couldn’t be more proud of the facility his company continues to support year after year.

    A special thanks to Luke Silinski for being the reason I made this video. Your Lego creation is amazing, and it was a great reason to get into telling our audience about the DOT platform. As you’ll see in the video, DOT is changing the way we approach growing food, by automating some of the most labor intensive parts of farming. It’s also enticing kids to consider applying their love of technology to the Ag industry, and maybe end up following a career in Ag.

    Cool.
