    In Québec, our abundance of mixed and hardwood forests gives us enormous potential for forest grown ginseng cultivation.
Welcome to the
Gatineau Valley Ginseng Growers Club!
  The Club de Producteurs de Ginseng de la Vallée-de-la-Gatineau (CPGVG) is a non-profit organization of forest grown ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) producers located in the Outaouais region of Québec. Forest grown ginseng is a particularly interesting agro-forestry crop because the marketing is already well developed, and it can be considered an important step in the diversification of forest activities and sustainable economic development of rural Québec.     Forest grown ginseng is known as a natural and quality product. It is cultivated without the pesticides necessary in field production of ginseng. This agro-forestry activity is environmentally conscious as well as giving added value to old growth, nutrient rich forests where ginseng is native. The goal of forest grown ginseng is to produce a product that resembles the physical form of wild ginseng roots.
