What is Valley View? Valley View is a grassroots, nonprofit organization with a simple mission- Conserving Land, Preserving History and Sharing it with the Community. In 2002, it was all but a foregone conclusion that what was then 190-acres of farmland would be bulldozed for development. Valley View was created and changed the outcome. A group of passionate volunteers have had the vision and tenacity to raise over $4 million to purchase and permanently preserve one of the last family farms in eastern Cincinnati. We have transformed from a grassroots organization started in a Milford living room into the responsible stewards of 190 acres of beautiful open land along the East Fork River with a rich history dating back 12,000 years. This land includes rivers, streams, wooded hillsides, prairie, streamside and isolated wetlands on a compact, easily-walkable site in the heart of Milford.
Who can volunteer? Up to 10 volunteers: Adults and children 7+ years old.
We'll be harvesting tomatoes to be given to local food banks as well as doing some feeding and fertilizing.

Harvard Connection: Early settlers found a very large bird shaped earthworks in Milford. This "Milford Works" sat on land immediately above Valley View's property. In 1882, Frederic Ward Putnam, of Harvard's Peabody Museum of American Archaeology and Ethnology, visited the Milford Works. At that time he reported that the square and great circle of the earthwork shown above could still be traced, but that their embankments had been nearly leveled by cultivation.
