Our Roots

In the summer of 1969, Jim and Jean Keary retired from the potato farming industry in Northern Maine. They purchased a piece of property on Route 28 in South Yarmouth, MA. It became the first and current location of Green Spot Garden Center.

The garden center was built in the early 1960s. Its main structure was a uniquely designed building typical of 60s architecture. A 600 sq ft greenhouse, a potting shed, and a lathe structure were also on the property. Over the years, several additions were made to the existing building and design.

Jim and Jean retired in 1978 and passed the business on to their son, Dan, and his wife Sheila. Dan and Sheila worked diligently over the next 27 years. Together, they developed the garden center into a successful, community-oriented business.

In March 2005, Dan and Sheila sold Green Spot Garden Center to a couple, Jim and Trish Behnke. Jim had worked for Dan for many years, and Trish is Sheila's cousin, thus keeping the business "in the family.”

Our Company Today

Green Spot Garden Center continues to operate, as it has for so many years, as a full-service garden center and nursery. Many members of our team have worked for both families for several years, and we expect to be around for many years to come.
