Unfortunately, no, there isn't.

This is because there is no way of breeding Pokemon that guarantees that all 6 IVs pass down to the offspring, and since Hidden Power is determined by IVs, you can't do it.

Just keep breeding until you get one with the Grass-type hidden power.

And as a side note, it is probably better to either have Grass Knot or HP Electric, or to just go with the standard Surf/Ice Beam/Extrasensory/Dark Pulse (or U-Turn).

EDIT: there is! Just look at this question.

Actually you can...? It's possible to breed for HP, the same way it's possible to breed for IVs. You just need the Destiny Knot, the Power items and a lot of patience/ luck.
I see what you mean.  Unfortunately, I think that that method has a 1/6 chance of working, and it doesn't pass down natures.
HP breeding is very much possible, it just takes a lot of time
