Learning Gardens is (as they self-describe) a meta-organization. It's a collective with a blurry sede in NYC, that tries to organize people and resources about "learning". Quite broad and abstract. This is how they describe themselves.
Learning Gardens is an open meta-organization to support grassroots non-institutional learning through community.
At its simplest, this means we want to help you start and run your own learning group.
At its best, we hope you and your friends achieve nirvana.
Playground was in big part inspired by Learning Gardens and I consider it to be part of it.
