Veteran grower and retailer, Shawn Keane, has joined the Greenstreet Gardens organization as general manager, overseeing operations at both retail locations in Lothian, Maryland and Alexandria, Virginia. Keane began his career as a third generation greenhouse grower in East Setauket, New York, working for his family’s business, Borella’s. He purchased the company in 1998, which he renamed Olde Towne Gardens.
“I have known Shawn for over 18 years,” says Ray Greenstreet, owner of Greenstreet Gardens. “As a grower and a retailer, he instinctively knows how to streamline retail operations to provide the best possible shopping experience for our customers, while offering only the highest quality products.” Keane will be instrumental in the expansion of the Fall Festival at the Lothian location as well as the introduction of educational events and seminars at the Alexandria site.
