In 1936 he purchased Prospect Plantation and later established Prospect College with the mandate of training boys to become more self reliant. He took great interest in the college up to his death in 1983 as did his widow Lady Mitchell and later his daughter the late Mary-Jean Mitchell Green. Mr Peter Green & his sons, Alexander and Andrew are now running the college.
