SEED – Dr. Yiwei Huang's Lab – Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture

Welcome to Sustainability Education and Engaged Design (SEED) Lab


In Huang’s lab, our focus lies in exploring the daily lives of individuals (especially children, senior, and ethnic minorities) and their interactions with the outdoor environment in urban settings. Our objective is to comprehend the diverse experiences across various demographics. We explain the significance of ecosystem services, equitable and inclusive greening, and sustainable site design to those who may lack the requisite knowledge. Moreover, we strive to enable underrepresented groups to express their enthusiasm to make positive transformations in cities, and we use experiments to test novel concepts and foster empowerment and progress.¬†

Children’s Book and Learning Games on Indiana Native Plants & Habitats

“Children’s Book and Learning Games on Native Plants” are the efforts of us landscape architecture students passing down to younger audiences two crucial things we have learned during our time as university students: plant native, and right plant, right place! By passing down this knowledge earlier in children’s education, the native ecosystems and habitats of our local environments could drastically change for the better and promote healthier habitats.
