This vacant lot will be transformed into a community garden for the Mill Street neighborhood in a "blitz build" scheduled 8:30 a.m., Saturday, Nov. 17, 2012. It is owned by Colorado Springs Utilities. This is how it appeared before Pikes Peak Urban Gardens started preparing it for gardening. Photo by Gazette file
