Dont Miss It: LA Farm Girl Book Signing
Did you know that:
Gardena was once known as the Strawberry Capital of the World?
Redondo Beach was once known as Carnation City?
There were still a dozen dairies in Torrance until the mid-1960s?
The Palos Verdes Peninsula was once one of the largest producing areas of garbanzo beans?
All of this and more is true, and are just some of the great things I discovered while researching my book, "Farming In Torrance And The South Bay." If you are interested in this fascinating history and want to learn more, come to a book signing this weekend in Torrance.
Here's the details:
