How do I make a simple, homemade, wind/water powered pump to extract water from a stream and pump up 10ft? Answered

Hi,
Anyone know to make a homemade wind/water powered pump to extract water from a fast flowing (shallow - 1ft) stream at the end of my garden and pump water up 6 - 10ft and then around my garden to feed plants and animals?

Good answer, but what about the "end of my garden" part?
The pump needs a fair head, so the inlet is quite possibly going to be upstream at the end of someone else's garden..?

Fast flowing water - Maybe the garden is wide - could be acres. The stream at the bottom of my garden is about 200 yards away from the house but unfortunately not fast flowing, in fact hardly flows at all.
