Community Garden


Our property is open to the public at no charge and includes miles of walking trails. We installed a deer fence and automated irrigation system to create a community garden. More than 40 families and a Cub Scout Pack from Mt. Lookout grew plots in the garden last year. Given the strong interest in this community activity, we tripled the size of the garden in 2011. We welcome new gardeners to Valley View. The garden brings together families and friends from across Greater Cincinnati.


A Little About Us


Valley View is a 150-acre nature preserve and education facility located near the confluence of the East Fork and Little Miami Rivers in Milford, Clermont County, Ohio. Valley View Foundation is a tax-exempt nonprofit corporation. We have an all volunteer board and a part time Executive Director - Vanessa Hannah. We were formed in 2002 by residents of Milford and others who were interested in preserving a historic farm and ecosystem for current and future generations to enjoy and learn from.


From Our President

“ On behalf of the Board of Directors of Valley View Foundation, I welcome you to our website and encourage you to visit our property, make a donation and get involved. This land truly is your land and we hope you come out and enjoy it all year round.”

Chris Habel, President of the Board of Directors
