  • Description


    Im Januka from Srilanka,Nuwaraeliya. I´m 31 years old and I have a 11 rooms guesthouse in Nanu Oya with a garden around the house. I have a big fish pond with 100 fishes. I like to do agriculture and I have a little vegetable farm where I´m planting some vegetables like beets, carrots and leaks.
    If you are good with gardening and plants, I would be happy about some help!

    I made a roof top garden with recycled materials. My guesthouse´s living room I painted like a street wall art...but it´s not finished yet....i want to finish this wall... So I would like to have some help with creative painting or a spray artist who could do a cool design on the wall.

    Right now I´m also working on opening a new hostel in Nuwara Elya. I need some help with construction, handcraft, painting and DIY decoration.

    So I need help in these three areas, you can choose whatever fits you best :)

    Choose whatever fits you best:

    1) GARDENING: I have a guesthouse and a big garden around it. I need help with basic gardening and maintaining the guesthouse (basic cleaning).

    2) PAINTING: The living room of my guesthouse needs some creative paintings. So if you have good art skills or if you are an spray artist, you are welcome to help me decorate and paint my wall and maybe even some other areas of the guesthouse and terrace.

    3) NEW HOSTEL: I´m opening a new hostel and need some help with general painting, some basic construction work, handcrafts, DIY decoration and the set up of the new hostel.
