April is Earth month, so this issue of West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle is packed with stories that celebrate nature and opportunities to step outdoors.

If you’re looking for a fun day trip or weekend camping destination, Hueston Woods State Park is just a short drive away. With 3,000 acres to explore, there are activities for outdoor enthusiasts of all ages and abilities.

I haven’t had the best luck keeping house plants alive, so if you’re like me, you’ll want to follow our guide on page 18 to learn what type of house plant is right for you.

Early spring is the perfect time for planting, but in our region only a handful of crops are ready for harvesting—asparagus and rhubarb. The Coach House shares recipes for tasty creations using these two unique ingredients that are plentiful in April.

With so much happening this spring, you might not have time to get out to the library. But don’t worry, the library could be coming to your neighborhood soon. Read more about MidPointe’s new Library On Wheels inside.

Enjoy these stories and more inside this edition of West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle.
