Summary
Move the bok choy, we're dying here." It's a simple sentiment, but one that sums up an argument to uproot the Chinese market gardens at La Perouse to make way for burial plots. A shortage of space in Sydney's East has led the management of the Eastern Suburbs Memorial Park, which incorporates Botany Cemetery, to submit a plan to the State Government to acquire 60 per cent of the adjacent market gardens, a 7ha slice of crown land. The chief executive officer of the memorial park, George Passous, said space in the cemetery was becoming scarce, a situation made more pressing by cultural sensitivities
