WHAT IS HENBANE MAGAZINE?
HENBANE a full page independently published annual magazine that focuses on women, non-binary, and people of all trans identities sharing stories, experiences and land based skills split more or less between personal narratives, poems, essays, and DIY articles.
The Henbane Collective and zine was inspired by Country Women, a 70’s feminist back-to-the-land magazine. We recognize the important contributions of those who preceded us. Our goal with this publication is to expand the concept and create a non-condescending, non-competitive way to share land-based skills, bringing together a widespread and diverse community.
WHO IS HENBANE?
Henbane contributors come from all parts of so-called North America. Currently the core collective of editors is small, but we would like to have more people involved in: social media, distribution, communications, art and design, and fundraising.
WHY DO WE MAKE HENBANE?...
TO RESIST CAPITALISM AND PATRIARCHY
Our interest in re-establishing a connection with nature is a form of resistance to the destructive systems of capitalism and patriarchy. We are committed to uplifting folks who identify as women, trans, non-binary, gender nonconforming, people of color, indigenous, queer, poor, fat, immigrants, undocumented, non-native english speakers, differently abled, neurodivergent, young, old, and others who are held down by the dominant culture. Gender and feminism are not static, and we understand that our collective idea of those concepts will continue to evolve.
