Worm Composting Teach-In
Sunday, March 3 | 12-2:30 PM | VisArts’ Pop-Up (VisAbility Art Lab’s Studio at 36F Maryland Avenue)
Join artist Gabriel Soto for an educational workshop about home composting methods!
Worm composting is a popular new method of processing food waste that’s being used by households, companies, and governments. Up to 30% of your current food waste can be safely and efficiently processed right in your home, saving energy and significantly reducing emissions in the process.
This workshop will introduce you to the basic principles of worm composting and its use in today’s homes, and provide information on how to better dispose of food waste without hassle. You’ll learn how to make and maintain a worm bin, how to dispose of food waste in it, and how to collect and use the organic fertilizer it creates. All materials will be provided.
This event is free and open to the public. RSVP below to reserve your space.

About Gabriel Soto
Gabriel Soto is one of the artists showing in the group exhibition, Gestures of Disappearance, curated by 2023 Bresler Resident Murat Cem Mengüç. Mengüç’s Gestures of Disappearance is a contemporary art project about climate change and, specifically, the carbon footprint of art making. As such, it has a multidisciplinary nature, including not just artistic expression and reflection, but also actual carbon emission calculations of the works involved in their presentation.
Aside from painting, Soto is a gardener who has engaged in several ecological projects, including growing a food garden, planting native plant species, and composting. He’s been interested in environmentalism and self-reliance since the beginning of the pandemic.
