I just learned that Cub Cadet and Mike Rowe, host of Discovery Channel&rsquo;s Dirty Jobs have teamed up to&nbsp;support&nbsp;American soldiers&nbsp;in conjunction with&nbsp;Project Evergreen’s Green Care For Troops program, which has helped more than 10,000 military families with&nbsp;yard maintenance since 2006.&nbsp;&nbsp;This program is designed to help folks with yard care while a member of the family is deployed — Cub Cadet’s involvement is just one of many reasons that I resonate&nbsp;with the brand.</p>

<p>Cub&nbsp;Cadet has been&nbsp;Green Care For Troops’&nbsp;&nbsp;financial underwriter&nbsp;since the&nbsp;beginning and&nbsp;this latest collaboration with Mike Rowe, called the&nbsp;&nbsp;&ldquo;Get Ready to Get Dirty&rdquo; challenge, asks Americans to roll up their sleeves, get dirty and volunteer to help neaby military families. In order to kick off the new effort, Cub Cadet and Mike Rowe&nbsp;recently completed a major lawn overhaul for a soldier who returned from overseas&nbsp;to find his yard in shambles. Mike Rowe and dozens of volunteers&nbsp;put&nbsp;a full line of Cub Cadet equipment to work and spent the day planting, tilling, digging, cutting, getting dirty — and having a bit of good clean fun. When the dust finally settled, the lawn was transformed from an overgrown disaster to an expanse of green to be proud of.</p>

<p>The Dirty Jobs production crew joined Mike Rowe&nbsp;on this special mission&nbsp;and captured short scenes to run within the Dirty Jobs television show — these scenes will begin airing tonight, along with longer segments that you can find online&nbsp;<a href=”http://www.cubcadet.com/greencare” target=”_blank”>here</a>.&nbsp; Be sure to check out what Mike Rowe has to “say” about the experience&nbsp;<a href=”http://www.mikeroweworks.com/greencare” target=”_blank”>here</a>.</p>
