About the Greenacres Foundation
Greenacres Foundation is a non-profit, private operating foundation established in 1988 by Louis and Louise Nippert. The Nipperts purchased Greenacres Farm in 1949 and wanted to preserve the land for the education and enjoyment of future generations. Greenacres Foundation mission is threefold: To preserve for the public an area reflecting the traditional environment of Indian Hill and its historical significance by preserving Greenacres in its current state of woodland and farmland; To encourage conservation and appreciation of nature by providing the public, particularly children, opportunities to study plant and animal life in their natural settings; To encourage appreciation of music and culture by providing facilities and an atmosphere that will encourage artists to display their talents for all age groups.
Greenacres property consists of a variety of habitats that provide many exciting opportunities for hands-on learning and appreciation. Visitors may explore the wonders of water in creeks and ponds, the mysteries of fields and forests or the thrill of agriculture and horticulture. Historical buildings include the Old Church, the Riding Club Barn, the stables and the Arts Center. In order to preserve Greenacres as a place of natural beauty and learning for future generations, all visits are by reservation only and group sizes are limited. In the same performance, these concerts will cater to every musical taste. The first act is like a fireworks display of music with themes from classical to Broadway, movies to folk tunes. The second act will be an abridged version of a well known Opera. Only at Greenacres can audiences see ballerinas dancing, Pops musicians playing, the May Festival Chorus signing and Opera singers serenading together on one stage.
