Strengthen the Grassroots Learning Community Where You Live
Evan Gardner can help revitalize a grassroots, village-centered learning culture for yourself, your family, and your hometown.
Though an initial accelerator for spreading the game, in the end, the medium of the internet will always finally limit how fast we can learn “Where Are Your Keys?”, and how deeply. We invite you to benefit from the added power of personal mentoring, perhaps the most fundamental “technique” of the fluency game.
