Green Time Walk
Fifteen people including two new friends took part in exploring Brading Down Nature Reserve and Kelly's Copse.
During the walk Rachel from Gift to Nature talked about the wildlife and plant life of the reserve.
With Rachel's and Mark's help the group correctly identified wild garlic while foraging for it in Kelly’s Copse.
They took the opportunity to admire the beautiful views of Sandown and Shanklin Bay.
Mark lead the Multiply session to develop the group's maths skills in a fun informal way.
They learnt to make Damper Bread. This was flavoured to the individual’s taste from
- wild garlic
- chocolate buttons.
Toppings were chosen individually from
- red peppers
- melted butter
- chocolate spread
- peanut butter
Group members worked in pairs following the recipe instructions. They used kitchen scales to weigh out ingredients and a measuring jug to add the correct amount of water.
All the group successfully cooked their Damper Bread (pdf) on a camping stove.

The walk was a lovely 2.5 miles round trip, took 5,600 steps, and burnt 234 Kcal.
