You all know how much we love Ladew Gardens — their annual Children’s Day, butterfly garden, summer concert series and story times are some of our favorite fam-friendly things to do. So when they let us know they’re hitting the “small screen,” we had to let you know!

Check them out on Mike Rowe’s Somebody’s Gotta Do It airing this Sunday at 10 PM on CNN. {Yes — put the kids to bed, grab a glass of vino and enjoy!} In it’s third season, Somebody’s Gotta Do It is Rowe’s new docuseries. You probably know him from Dirty Jobs, his little tête-à-tête with City Paper’s David Simon, narrating Deadliest Catch or even as the voice of the Ford F-150 commercials. 

This season, Mike visits unique individuals and joins them in their respective undertakings, paying tribute to innovators, do-gooders, entrepreneurs, collectors, fanatics – people who simply have to do it. This show is about passion, purpose, and — occasionally — hobbies that get a little out of hand.

So what is he learning at Ladew? The fine art of topiary creation and care, of course!
