Malvern Hill Farm under contract


A historic Eastern Henrico farm – the site of a bloody Civil War battle in 1862 – will be preserved in its entirety, thanks to the Capital Region Land Conservancy.

The CRLC has agreed to purchase Malvern Hill Farm (which is about 875 acres in size and straddles Eastern Henrico and Charles City County) for its appraised value of $6.56 million. The sellers are by descendants of William Heighler Ferguson Sr., who originally purchased Malvern Hill Farm in 1939.

“In one transaction CRLC is taking a giant step in protecting the natural and historic land and water resources of our region,” said Parker C. Agelasto, executive director of Capital Region Land Conservancy. > Read more.

Business in brief


The McShin Foundation recently received a charitable donation of 100 EVZIO™ naloxone auto-injectors from Kaléo, a Richmond-based pharmaceutical company. EVZIO, the first and only naloxone product labeled for immediate administration by family members or caregivers as emergency therapy for the treatment of known or suspected opioid overdose, is a pre-filled, single-use, hand-held auto-injector that works by temporarily blocking the effect of an opioid, potentially reversing the life-threatening respiratory depression and allowing the recipient to breathe more regularly. Each EVZIO uses voice and visual cues to assist in guiding a user through the injection process and delivers a single 0.4 mg dose of naloxone HCl injection. > Read more.

Short Pump ES students to host pumpkin launch, composting event

Judy Fitzpatrick’s Short Pump Elementary School students are making Halloween greener by asking people to launch their rotting pumpkins. Fitzpatrick’s fourth-graders are offering an alternative to sending tired jack-o’-lanterns to the landfill: turning them into compost to enrich the soil and feed pigs and other livestock.

If a more sustainable holiday isn’t reason enough to take part in the school’s Smash-O-Lantern event, those who bring their pumpkins to the school this Saturday, Nov. 8, from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., will get a chance to launch their gourds into recycling fame. The students are working with an engineer and the staff at Home Depot to construct and test a launcher. > Read more.
