Pelican Properties is proud to contribute to the community by providing administrative or financial support to the following initiatives:



Mendel's Murals

Mendel's Murals is a non-profit public arts group. We enable Saskatoon public art projects which might be difficult for individuals or institutions. We initially came together to save the Perehudoff murals commissioned by Fred Mendel for his Intercontinental Packing Plant offices, which were slated for demolition in 2008. The murals were completed in 1953 by William Perehudoff at a time before his work was well-known. Perehudoff is now one of Saskatoon's most famous artists. The murals were painted onto the plaster walls of a historic art gallery Fred Mendel had installed in the building. Mendel is one of Saskatoon's most respected historical figures. Our success in that project motivated us to continue pursuing public art works meaningful to Saskatoon. We are not affiliated with the Mendel Art Gallery.

In November 2010 the restoration was successfully completed and the murals are now safely crated. The next step is to mount them in the new Art Gallery of Saskatchewan, when it is built.

Drinkle3 provides management and administration for Mendel's Murals.

Milden Food Project

A non-denomonational growing project to help end third world hunger; supported by Canadian Foodgrains Bank and by farmers and businesses near Milden, Sask.

Each year a crop is planted on 80 acres at the Denny farm located two miles North and three miles East of Milden, Saskatchwan. Materials and labour for the crop are provided by local farmers and businesses. All funds generated by the sale of that crop are donated to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFB) who allocate the money to a specific overseas project. The Canadian government typcially matches CFB donations 4:1, so $10,000 generated by a crop results in $50,000 to spend overseas. As of spring 2012 the project had generated $104,073 after the government match. CFB's mission is to fight hunger. Sometimes their projects provide food to the malnourished. Often projects provide seed, tools, fertilizer, irrigation, or education to help farmers to feed their own communities.

2012 - 80 Acres of Red Lentils. We dont have a total tonage yet, but the crop is in the bin and it likely averaged about 16 bushels to the acre. We lost about 30% of the crop this year to hail, which drove the pods to the ground, but also made it very hard to pick up with the combine.

2011 - Summerfallow

2010 - Our 2010 wheat crop, as poor as it was, generated $6,373.68 which has been donated to a food-for-work project in Bangladesh. CIDA matched our donation 4:1, resulting in $31,868.40 total aid generated by the project. The project is run by World Relief Canada, with support from the United Church. It supports a group called Koinonia in Kandi & Suagram Unions in Gopalgonj District in Bangladesh. This project will improve the local agricultural environment by draining stagnant water, and by rehabilitating canals, using food-for-work. The project will utilize 605 tonnes of rice for the food-for-work component of the project benefiting 1,450 families. The other food security activities will benefit another 1,590 families.

Our 2009 flax crop helped provide food security for Tamil people displaced by war in the North of Sri Lanka. The crop was sold for $14,441, all of which was donated. The Canadian International Development Agency matched our donation 4:1, resulting in $72,205 total aid generated by the project.

Drinkle3 is the primary funder for the Milden Food Project.
