Verbals that end in -ing are either gerunds or present participles. In this case, it's a gerund phrase that is serving as the subject of the whole sentence; the main verb is "is."

Nouns can be used as subjects, direct objects, and objects of prepositions. Adjectives always modify a noun or pronoun. If you understand these parts of speech and their uses in sentences, it should be fairly easy to tell the difference between gerunds and participles.
