    There is small garden between my house and studio, where I am offering my guests to stay. I would like to get some help with landscape architecture, advice how to arrange the garden in optimal way, choose right plants to plant. I will work physically as well and assist the realisation of the project.

    Regarding the internet assistance, I am developing several websites; my personal as an artist and for the organization using Joomla open source soft. I just need to make new websites and transfer the database from the old site to new one. Also would like to get help to arrange online payment or donation receiving module integrated into the websites.

    What else ...

    It is an artist run studio, in Zeytun district of Yerevan, just next door where I am living with my large family.

    There is a garden, planted by my grandfather in between my home and the studio.

    There is a big supermarket very close to my place which is open for 24 hours, there are restaurant, fast-food, bakery and many other shops nearby.

    We are located on the central street and it is very easy to get public transport to every side of Yerevan. I can show my gests around, maybe also take to excursion nearby.

    I am going to bed late usually but guests sleep whenever they want. Depending the situation I can host more then one parson and the length of stay we can discuss beforehand.
