Outback Links teamwork gives Cobargo a boost

In the heart of Cobargo, a small NSW town, the Community Garden stands as a testament to resilience, nurtured by the unwavering support of Outback Links volunteers and Frontier Services.

Amidst the wreckage left by the Black Summer bushfires, Cobargo found strength in solidarity. The local Co-op, Cobargo Commons (“Cocos”), and the neighborhood pub rallied together, ensuring no one faced the aftermath alone. Now, as the town rebuilds, Cocos spearheads efforts to restore the Garden—a vital hub for communal healing.

With many locals already cultivating their plots, the Garden serves as more than just a green space; it’s a beacon of hope and connection. Initiatives like the “10×10” program foster community bonds while imparting essential gardening skills, empowering residents to grow and thrive together.

For those grappling with loss and uncertainty, the Garden offers solace—a sanctuary where shared burdens become shared victories. It’s a place where neighbors become family, lifting each other up in times of need.

When Outback Links volunteers from the NRMA, supported by Frontier Services, descended upon Cobargo, they brought with them not just manpower, but a renewed sense of hope. In a matter of days, the Garden transformed from neglect to vibrancy, signaling a new chapter of growth and resilience.

In Quaama, neighboring volunteers joined forces, tending to the Garden surrounding the Community Hall—a symbol of resilience and refuge during the fires.

Through the collective efforts of volunteers and the unwavering support of Frontier Services, Cobargo’s Community Garden stands as a testament to the power of community and the resilience of the human spirit.
