For my senior capstone project I wanted to answer the question: 'How can design help motivate non-gardeners of Generation Y to garden?' My design solution is the mobile application Herban.
Herban uncomplicates gardening so non-gardeners can experience the benefits of herb gardening. Through a mobile application, city dwellers of Generation Y with a lack of time and space will be able to successfully grow and maintain a cost-efficient herb garden. Herban is a tool that helps users find a herb that suits their lifestyle and then helps them keep track and grow their herb. Herban encourages users to shift their attitude of gardening to be an urban, trendy, sophisticated, and modern as well as smart, economical, and educated activity.
