Coastal Florida Cities Continue to Go Green With TOP Organic Fertilizer

Cities of Cocoa and Jupiter, Florida Lead the Pack

ALPHARETTA GA--(Marketwire - January 29, 2008) - The cities of Cocoa and Jupiter, Florida have officially "gone green" with Organic Growing Systems' TOP Organic Fertilizer.

Through its new premier Florida distributor, Florida Mulch, Inc., Organic Growing Systems, a subsidiary of Advanced Growing Systems, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AGWS), has begun supplying TOP 4-2-2 organic fertilizer to these and other coastal cities.

Surrounded by the Indian River, the City of Cocoa was particularly attracted by the non-leaching properties of organic fertilizer. Mike McGilvary of Florida Mulch capitalized on this need by showing the city the benefits of TOP 4-2-2.

The City of Jupiter is also poised to reap the benefits of TOP Organic Fertilizer. To support its "Keep JupITer Green" program, the city recently awarded a major contract to One Source Landscaping to supply all of its mulch, soil, and organic fertilizers. Through One Source Landscaping's partnership with Florida Mulch, TOP Organic Fertilizer will soon be helping this city achieve its "green" goals.

These cities exemplify the growth Organic Growing Systems is experiencing in the region. At the recent TPIE (Tropical Plant Industry Expo) show at the Fort Lauderdale Convention Center, Organic Growing Systems, Inc. and Florida Mulch, Inc. were among only four exhibitors selected from 1000 and named leaders in products that promote sustainability in agriculture.

"We were very proud and honored to have been selected out of so many vendors," said Marc Nichols, Regional Sales Manager for Organic Growing Systems, Inc. "It's exciting to see individuals, businesses and even entire cities realize the huge benefits of our fertilizers."

"We are also extremely excited about our continued partnership with Florida Mulch, Inc.," Nichols continued. Both companies recognize the tremendous potential for TOP Organic Fertilizers in the state of Florida and particularly in the coastal regions."

According to Nichols, Florida Mulch Inc. CEO Willard Palmer indicated $2 - $2.5 million in sales is obtainable for 2008 given the growing market for organic fertilizer and the particular niche filled by Organic Growing Systems, Inc.

To continue to market the product to new customers, Marc Nichols and Mike McGilvary will be attending a meeting of the Tampa Mulch and Soil Council on February 15 and the Tampa Bay Spring Expo on February 22nd-23rd.
