Welcome to Healthy Green Gardening With AOP; Company's Organic Products Target the "Edible Revolution," Involving Millions of Households and Billions of Dollars

SPRINGFIELD, OH--(Marketwire - January 4, 2011) - AOP Worldwide, a subsidiary of Talisman Holdings (PINKSHEETS: TMHO) -- The size of the enormous home gardening world is staggering. There are 100 million U.S. households with a yard or garden, who are a part of the $175 billion worldwide fertilizer industry. People tend to think of gardening as greening the world... but it has been proven that many, many traditional approaches are far from earth friendly. The reality is far from the perception -- just consider the heavy pollution of our storm drains by pesticides.

There is a definite, and growing, trend which reflects the increasing importance people attribute today to maintaining lawns and gardens in an environmentally friendly way -- a trend which most certainly will continue to increase. A recent survey showed 89% of all households responding were interested in more ecologically friendly products which reduce chemical exposure and water pollution. Only 10% of survey respondents said they will probably not use all natural growing methods in the future.

Responsible gardeners want to find better methods. That's why an ever-increasing number are turning to, and extolling the merits of, the extraordinary Advanced Organic Products Worldwide (AOP) products.

AOP, a subsidiary of Talisman Holdings, has created, with its technology partner, a line of organic fertilizers which are made from a unique, proprietary process using fresh fish to produce a non-burning, natural fertilizer which feeds the whole plant, providing for fast and long lasting greening.

The AOP products have been certified as safe by regulatory bodies and approved for application in organic agriculture and home and garden use. They are beneficial for all types of plants, shrubs, fruits and vegetables.

Customers have the peace of mind that the products are risk free, that local water supplies are not being compromised, and that they can be applied without worries to human health.

They are the perfect answer to the "edible explosion," and the rapid shift to "safe gardening." Food gardening has emerged as a chic new hobby, benefiting both gardeners and the environment. For example, Burpee Seeds reports a 20% jump in sales in patio garden seeds and plants over last year.

Forty-three million, or 37%, of American families engaged in gardening production in 2009, up from 36 million households, or 31%, of U.S. households in 2008. It is expected that this roughly 20% yearly growth will continue in the future.

In 2008, home gardeners spent roughly 2.5 billion to purchase seeds, fertilizers and other gardening supplies. Among the reasons cited were: better tasting food; saving money on food bills; better quality food; and growing food they know is safe.

Reflecting this increased interest, a majority of U.S. households surveyed -- 55% -- believe gardening activities should be implemented whenever possible, including school classes.

The AOP organic products, combined with good gardening practices, eliminate risks to you and your family, promote biodiversity, reduce pollution and develop healthy soil and plants. By adopting these natural products, you'll notice a remarkable difference in time and resources spent in your yard, and your plants, lawn and trees will be a green space that is alive and vibrant.

"We are catching the crest of a wave, and aim to create an outdoor utopia without chemically altering and damaging our air, soil, plants and other living materials essential to achieve sustainability," said David Long, Company President.
