WANTED: Supplies for a school project Answered

I am making a green watering system for a vertical garden at my school. The design involves a 55gal. drum with an autonomous solar pump unit designed to water the plants on a regular basis. I have a pretty good idea what is involved and what supplies I need, the list is as follows.

X1 - car battery (for power storage)
X1 - watertight box (to hold battery and other electronics)
X1 - DC water pump (to power the drip system)
X1 - Electric timer (to control when the pump comes on)
X1 - solar panel (sufficient to charge the battery)
X1 - charge controller?
Some lumber and PVC

Feel free to ask any questions or make a suggestions.

in some parts of the USA, there is a program called FreeCycle, where you can ask for and supply things for free. Nothing is ALLOWED to be sold there.

Right. My school is Palisades Charter High School in Pacific Palisades Califonia, zip 90272

You can reasonably expect people close to you to donate these materials. It is expensive to have them delivered to you.

Are you asking people to supply these items?

If so, you'd better include some extra details, starting with where your school is located.
