negotiating community garden fee hike

At this point, the group shouldn't be offering to negotiate an  increase.  
But Adam is right that they should discuss it earnestly  among themselves and 
try to arrive at a what-if consensus.  The garden  should be treated similarly 
to all other recreational land uses and at this  point, the garden group should 
research what revenue the city has historically  gotten from all other 
recreational land uses, how much it seeks to get in the  future, and how all of the 
other constituents of these land uses are feeling  about the increases.  From 
the email that was presented to the list, the  city is seeking some sort of 
market rate rental amount, and is not treated the  community garden as it would 
a park.
