Urban Roots says it will plant 10 different kinds of hops.
Urban Roots' executive director Jeff Bryant says they could be a workable alternative for farmers because hops require much less water than other crops such as alfalfa.

Bryant says planting will begin in April and the hop vines will take about three years to reach maturity.
