Shepherdstown's annual Back Alley Tea and Tour and newly created Gardenfest drew visitors from town, county and beyond. Attendees traversed the streets of town where they enjoyed a variety of garden spaces often hidden from view on any given day. Residents stepped up and opened their gardens, showing off beautiful plantings, statuary and water features.
Demonstrations were seen on bees, gardening and a variety of other agriculture and tourist friendly lessons. Topping it off were delicious treats at the "Tea" at the War Memorial Building. Shopping could be accomplished not only at all the local businesses, but also at community sales.
Serving at the tea were a group of local teens. Shown, back row, from left are Josie Valentine, Clara Lo, Milo Levine, Nathan Howard and Zoe Levine. Seated in the front row are Katy Super, Olivia Lanham and Grace Valentine.
