Jennie Garth is returning to television and no it’s not back to the popular zip code 90210, but to the countryside.

Thanks to CMT, Garth will be filming her own reality show called “I Love Jennie,” which follows the 39-year-old actress, her three daughters and husband Peter Facinelli, known for his role as Dr. Carlisle Cullen in the “Twilight” movies, around their new seven-acre farm in California.

This isn’t the first time Garth has showed her greener side. In 2010, she and her husband built a green home from the ground up. Both seem passionate about teaching their children the importance of sustainability and conserving energy.

“Because I have a family, because I have three kids, it is extremely important to me that when they grow up, they have this energy. It’s important we get off foreign oil. There are other ways to harness energy. It’s important for me to teach my kids and not wait around to have other people fix the problem,” Facinelli said in an interview with She Knows.

As of now, their reality show will premiere in April 2012 and is slated for eight episodes.

Are you excited to see Garth and her family down on the farm?
