Wish List

We are currently looking for donations of the following items for our projects. This list is not all inclusive and is currently being modified into separate smaller projects and if there are items you or your company can provide that are not listed, please contact us at support@hydroponicsforhumanity.org and we will be glad to accept your assistance. Donors will be listed on our Supporters page.

Every dollar raised will go towards this project and every item we receive as a donation stretches our budget that much further. Costs are estimates based on available information, actual costs may vary.

What happens if we receive multiple donations of the same item? Additional items will be kept for future builds. We will construct the units as quickly as we can obtain sufficient materials.

In addition to the items below; we could use technical help with the following trades:

  • Plumbing
  • Electrical
  • Architectural (Design help for students trying to mask the look of the container)
  • Solar Power (This would be a wonderful addition to make the containers more sustainable.)
