Building A Raised Bed Garden

I built a 3′ by 8′ raised bed garden planter of wood and I need to install it on a gentle slope. The slope provides drainage away from the foundation of my house and out of the yard to the street. Do I dig the uphill side of the bed into the slope so the bottom of the downhill side is on the ground? I am concerned about interfering with the drainage and having water standing around the uphill side of the raised bed.
