|We recently professionally installed a raised (l) 16' X (w) 4' X (d)18'' garden intended to be an extended family vegetable garden and to appeal to our 3 and 5-year-old grandchildren.
Should we plant a winter garden at this time (late Nov.)?
If so, what should we plant? (We want to be water and space-efficient.)
If so, where should we obtain recommended starter plants?
We are novices. We want to be efficient, as well as provide a positive experience for our whole family.
Thanks for the advice.

Visit you local nursery (not Big Box store) and see what they have in the way of winter veggies. Considering where you are, I would think about lettuce for sure. Other vegetables for winter would be things like brussel sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, onions... These plants are usually started from seed in late summer/early fall to grow all winter. Hopefully you can find a nursery with ideas and small plants.
Edited to add peas. Snap peas, sugar peas, peas.
