Gardena is a city in the South Bay of Los Angeles in Southern California. The community originally evolved from part of the Spanish land grant, the Rancho San Pedro, given to Juan Jose Dominguez around 1800. It was officially incorporated on September 11, 1930. It combined the rural communities of Gardena, Moneta, and Strawberry Park into a Municipal Corporation, Sixth Class City. Farming became Gardena's main industry early in the twentieth century especially strawberries.
