Breathing Life Into Dead Parks

Like the garden fairy her mission is to flutter from one park to the next, tapping plants with her magic wand to make them come alive. But she argues that it’s not magic that brings parks to life. It’s the people who go there.

Nadine is the founder of Leaf Plus, an environmental communications firm, and creator of Hidden Park, a grassroots campaign to breathe life back into Jakarta’s abandoned parks, and make it a popular destination for recreation. She believes that the best things in life can be found in parks: education, family, community, health, and happiness.
