Recognizing Debi the Gardener for her years of service in Tompkins Square Park
Deborah Hulse, better known as Debi the Gardener to regulars of Tompkins Square Park, retired in December after nearly 15 years with the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation.
During the January Community Board 3 meeting last night, local City Councilmember Carlina Rivera recognized Hulse for her years of service to the neighborhood. Hulse had worked in Tompkins Square Park since March 2009.
EVG correspondent Steven shared the above photo from the meeting. From left: Alan Good, who donated the ping pong tables to the Park, Hulse, Park regular Monica Rittersporn, and Rivera.
