Nathaniel’s “Green” Thumb

This photo of Nathanial Green is proof of South Kensington’s community pride. Especially considering this is not Nathaniel’s garden!

This photo was snapped in 1992 by his wife, Helen Green. At the time, their neighbors had abandoned their home on the 1300 block of North 2nd Street.

While this address was not Nathaniel’s, their block was still their home. So he took to trimming the rosebushes and maintaining the street nice for his neighbors. Today, the house has been renovated, but we’re still amazed by Nathaniel’s dedication to his community!
