Planting above ground veggie garden

Hello. I am in East Tennessee (Knoxville area) and want to plant an above ground veggie garden. I have a 2 year old daughter and would love to teach her about gardening. I think she would love it! I want to do above groun because we have colonies of rabbits in the back yard. Any tips on how to keep them out of the garden? I know that when I build the garden, I am going to make a fence like thing on the bottom with some sort of wire, anything else I can do?

A good galvanized chicken-wire fence, buried just a few inches in the ground, should take care of the rabbits with no problem. Groundhogs and voles, if you have either, are a different story.
