Bit of Earth was a Lord of the Rings-themed charity group created in January 2002 by Victoria Bitter.

It sponsored the creation of a children's reading garden called "Project Elanor" in April 2003. The actor, Sean Astin, was a participant.

"Bit of Earth" was also the sponsor of the scam, Tentmoot, a supposed Lord of the Rings con planed for December 2003. This con was supposed to feature appearances by a number of "Lord of the Rings" actors and various musical acts.

"Bit of Earth" had a mailing list and a website, now offline.

The group generated massive wank due to scams, leadership, and more.
