Welcome to Southwind District!
As a part of K-State Research and Extension, Southwind district programs present educational information and programming related to agriculture and natural resources, family and consumer sciences, 4-H youth development, and community vitality.
We serve the people of Allen, Bourbon, Neosho and Woodson Counties and have offices in each of those counties.
Our philosophy is to help people help themselves by taking university knowledge to where people live, work, and play. We work at being responsive to the needs of the people by focusing our resources on providing quality information, education, and problem-solving for real concern. The information we provide is research-based and unbiased.
