Gardi is a small unincorporated community on the outskirts of Jesup, Georgia, in the United States.[1] The community exists primarily along U.S. Route 341 and its population is around 200.

Some say the community derives its name from the fact one had to guard one's eyes when passing through a nearby swamp, while others believe the name Gardi is derived by shortening and altering the surname Gardner.[2]
