need design water system with no power source

i need to design a water system for an organic garden with no power source, but we have water source.
wondering if easyflow system works with battery power pump?

looking to have our water source flow into two water storage tanks and use battery powered water pumps, then connect a solar power trickle charge to the battery source. are their product that you have to accomplish this type of design?
i though the easyflow system might be able to be used with this type of set up? if not, can you recommend any vendors who specialize with this type of set up. ?( we would a use drip irrigation into our raised beds.

EZ Flo required 2 gallon per minute minimum to function. At this point it would depend on the pump.
Their smallest tank:
Tank Capacity - Liquid: Approx. 1.5 Gal. (5.7 liters)
Tank Capacity - Water Soluble Fertilizer: Up to 10 - 12 lbs. (4.5 - 5.4 kg)
Minimum Flow (Ball Valve Coupling): 2.5 gallons/hour (9.5 liters/hr.)
Minimum Flow (Standard Coupling): 2 gallons/minute (7.6 liters/minute)

As far as your system in general, there are a number of similar designs on youtube and if you search on different variations of 'solar power irrigation', 'solar powered irrigation system', etc.
