A few weeks ago at the annual Prairie Festival in Salina, Kan---a celebration, essentially, of true sustainability---I sat down with Wes Jackson to drink rich beer and eat delicious, chewy bread made from the perennial grain Kernza. The Kernza we ate was cultivated at the Land Institute, the festival's sponsor and the organization Jackson founded here 34 years ago.

From New York Times: Now This is Natural Food

Hi, everyone:

I feel the bold sentence is not grammatically correct. It should be:

The Kernza we ate was cultivated at the Land Institute, the organization Jackson, the festival's sponsor, founded here 34 years ago.

Am I right?

THANKS

    It's correct I think. Land Institute is the sponsor of the festival and this organization (Land Institute) was founded by Jackson.
    What you wrote offers 3 different entities: Land Institute, Jackson Organization and festival sponsor whereas all are the same. Also the last part of your sentence is ungrammatical. What was founded 34 years ago?
